Works Well But Misses Entries

This plugin does what it says it will do, however, upon entering a list of comma separated plugin locations to install that I have on a separate server, it will install about 80% of them.

It just seems to miss some of the plugins in my list randomly. All the formatting is consistent throughout the whole list and I’ve checked the spelling etc three times so idk why it’s happening.

It also doesn’t give any errors if something doesn’t work right, so I have to manually check it all worked.

Great little plugin!

I’ve been looking for a way to bulk create pages for a while. This does that and so much more. Thanks for building it!
In the future an option to create the main menu would be great also 🙂

1000 hours

Well this nice little plugin could have saved me 1000’s of hours over the past 10 years. Very nice. Thank you very much. A real timesaver with no learning curve.
